After the sell-out performance of Swan Lake last year and The Nutcracker the year before, Russian National Ballet returns to the Maltings to enchant you with another delightful production of The Nutcracker!

Prepare to enter a magical new world – the nutcracker in this ballet may be a handsome prince in disguise.

 

The original Christmas story is based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King written by E.T.A. Hoffmann. It tells the story of Marie, a sad little girl, whose godfather, Drosselmeier, gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve. In her lively imagination it turns into a prince and the magic starts…
 
The ballet is the ultimate fairy-tale where goodness and beauty triumph and is one of the jewels of Tchaikovsky's repertoire.
 
This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey in the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to audiences of any age to the magic that is classical ballet.
 
A wonderful treat for the whole family!
